I am 25 years old. There was a time when I was dying from drugs. I wanted to speed up my death, because I was tired of living for a single day with the same goal - to get a dose. During those eight years I lost everything - friends and parents trust, and most importantly - human dignity. I felt so low, that I began to steal and lie. Many times I tried to fight my addiction. My parents spent a lot of time, power and money on expensive medical services, but it was all useless. At the time, I was disappointed in everything and concluded that former addicts simply do not exist. I became totally inadequate, and there was nothing left from my humanity. I am grateful to the social adaptation centre "Independence" where I gained freedom from drugs. Now I am living and helping others to live. I am a happy person with a happy future.
